Elon Musk, the Tesla CEO, philanthropic billionaire, and a lot more, became a father for the 7th time by welcoming his son in this world on May 4, 2020. Apart from the fact that Elon Musk had a child with his girlfriend, Grimes, the news became a global sensation for one more specific reason – the child’s name!
Elon Musk’s youngest son has the most unique name ever and he is called X Æ A-12. Recently, Elon Musk shared a picture on twitter with his baby and captioned it in German. If people were not confused already with the name, they sure are now confused with what Elon is trying to convey with the picture. Well, worry not because we have you covered.
Elon Musk & Son
We are so obsessed with this genius billionaire and everything that he does. So, obviously, Twitter went crazy when Elon shared his sweet fatherly side with the world. He posted a picture on Twitter holding his little boy in his left arm on July 21, 2020. Elon captioned the picture – ‘Das baby kann noch keinen löffel benutzen.’ So… what is it even supposed to mean?
All you confused folks out there -for starters – that’s German. Now, we obviously cannot expect the genius mind to anything mundane, can we? The caption in English means – ‘the baby can’t use spoon yet.’ Well, of course, he cannot because he is just 2 months old! And we know that Elon Musk was just trying to be funny and that is why we love this adorable picture even more.
Elon Musk is cradling his little one and we can’t help notice how doting of a father he looks.
Now, a lot of people are wondering after reading that strange caption that if Elon Musk is secretly German or has any German roots. To answer that – no, neither Elon Musk is secretly German nor he has any ancestral German roots that we know of.
However, Elon has lived in South Africa for a very long time and people there speak German quite fluently. Elon’s mother is also not fluent in the language but sure does know an adequate amount of it.
Another reason for the German caption can also be the recent dispute between German courts and Elon Musk. The German courts have prohibited Elon Musk from using the terminology ‘Autopilot’ anywhere in his advertisements. Elon Musk, obviously, did not take it so well and tweeted some harmless joke on Twitter about it.
We might not know about the real reason behind the caption but we like to believe that it was one of the many other crazy ideas that hit Elon Musk randomly (or maybe not that randomly).
What does X Æ A-12 Mean?
No matter how many of you try to deny it, you simply cannot ignore ‘X Æ A-12’ as a person’s name. It is confusing, intriguing, and unique in all the way and we guess that might have just been a fleeting intention of Elon and Grime behind the name.
The name is pronounced as ‘X Eye A-12’ and the little one is nicknamed as ‘Little X’. Grimes took it on Twitter and trying explaining the name for all the people out there.
X is an unknown variable and Æ is for Artificial Intelligence. A-12 is the precursor to Grimes and Elon’s favorite aircraft that represents greatness in battle but non-violence as well. Also, A is for Archangel, her favorite song. The entire name is like a sci-fi vibe and she hopes her son’s personality catches up with the vibe as well.
Elon Musk’s net worth is of 7,370 crores USD as of 2020.
